Oh my....

I do not know how to blog and live my life at the same time. I am at the age where parents are beginning to be an issue. For the past two weeks I have had my mother in law with Alzheimers to give my husbands brother and sister in law a break. Even though I am a nurse by profession it is not a job for the weak at heart or anyone with a sewing. If my camera battery had not died I would show you what I did manage to get accomplished which is organizing some of my fabric BUT the reason for this post is this.

Is this a stupid block? Do not be nice.
I need to make
four more blocks, they are time consuming and I have a backup block. I just do not want to give a stupid block. The colors were obviously aqua, orange and yellow. The person likes HR...well, who doesn't but have I stared at this block for too many hours and blinded myself against it? I have made only two of the six I am to make. Here was the initial one

I had no reservations about this one. Came together quickly and i like it.
Did my mother in laws alzheimers skew my thought processes and creativity
or am I just having a mini breakdown?
Help a girl out before someone gets a bad block.

If I were doing it again i would do a wonky log cabin in a circular design.
similar to this but not as structured.

thanks for your input!


  1. I like it! I love all the different selvages you had to use. Pretty cool.

  2. When it first popped up in my view I said Oh neat block. So it gets my vote. I think you have probably looked at it too much, walk away then come back,before you make your decision.


You are all dear to me and every message means so much. I really take these to heart...good and bad, so fire away! I need your input!
